Website | Discussion Forum | Documentation

OpenVDB is an open source C++ library comprising a novel hierarchical data structure and a large suite of tools for the efficient storage and manipulation of sparse volumetric data discretized on three-dimensional grids. It was developed by DreamWorks Animation for use in volumetric applications typically encountered in feature film production.

Development Repository

This GitHub repository hosts the trunk of the OpenVDB development. This implies that it is the newest public version with the latest features and bug fixes. However, it also means that it has not undergone a lot of testing and is generally less stable than the production releases.

Developer Quick Start

The following provides basic installation examples for the core OpenVDB library. Other components, such as the python module, OpenVDB AX and various executables, may require additional dependencies. See the build documentation for help with installations.

Linux

Installing Dependencies (Boost, TBB, Blosc)
apt-get install -y libboost-iostreams-dev
apt-get install -y libboost-system-dev
apt-get install -y libtbb-dev
git clone [email protected]:Blosc/c-blosc.git
cd c-blosc
git checkout tags/v1.5.0 -b v1.5.0
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j4
make install
cd ../..
Building OpenVDB
git clone [email protected]:AcademySoftwareFoundation/openvdb.git
cd openvdb

make -j4
make install

macOS

Installing Dependencies (Boost, TBB, Blosc)
brew install boost
brew install tbb
git clone [email protected]:Blosc/c-blosc.git
cd c-blosc

make install

Windows

Installing Dependencies (Boost, TBB, Blosc)

Note that the following commands have only been tested for 64bit systems/libraries. It is recommended to set the VCPKG_DEFAULT_TRIPLET environment variable to x64-windows to use 64-bit libraries by default. You will also require Git, vcpkg and CMake to be installed.

vcpkg install zlib:x64-windows
vcpkg install blosc:x64-windows
vcpkg install tbb:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-iostreams:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-system:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-any:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-algorithm:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-uuid:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-interprocess:x64-windows
Building OpenVDB
git clone [email protected]:AcademySoftwareFoundation/openvdb.git
cd openvdb
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=<PATH_TO_VCPKG>\scripts\buildsystems\vcpkg.cmake -DVCPKG_TARGET_TRIPLET=x64-windows -A x64 ..
cmake --build . --parallel 4 --config Release --target install
